In regards to file managers, I doubt these can edit system configs and do any noticeable change in the OS itself. If they do, then I guess we're even.
ROM management is differenton Android. Essentially you can reboot to a recovery mode, where you can do a number of things - backup the existing state of the device, restoring from a previous backup (even with a different OS version e. g. Froyo to Gingerbread) and the usual data wipe. Backups are done by the device for a few minutes, saving them as zip files to be saved in the internal storage. Custom ROMs are different depending on the developer; though all were built from the same Android AOSP source, they can make their own tweaks and additions. Some aim for a stock experience without bloatware, others heavily skin the system like MIUI. They can implement different kernels to suit their needs - some enable overclocking and voltage editing, others improve radio signal and battery life.
As to Widgets, I would like you to provide me with visual proof that Widgets on iOS are comparable in form and function as those in Android.
I already explained how you can do a full backup straight from your phone. You can gzip everything into one file as well. You're not explaining anything new here.
Why would a file manager not be able to edit a file? All you need is root access...
Custom ROMs are exactly that. Custom. They can remove features or add their own customizations and skinning by deafault. Why do you seem to think there's any difference?
iTunes isn't the only way to access your device... If I'm having to explain this to you, no wonder you don't understand. We've been using something as basic as command line and ssh since 2007 to modify the iPhone. Well before custom ROMs were popular.
Reading comprehension fail...
Konfabulator came out in 2003. I said OS9 had widgets. How can you be that slow?
